No, according to the best information I can find, not for '09.
There's a possibility that they might announce such a thing during the new year, but for 2010 or later models.
Same reasons they're not available on all models of everyone else's bikes either.I would love here an explanation as to how such a obvious component as ABS brakes in the Cruiser/Tourer market could have been so completely over looked.

But some how they put ABS on other bike in the line up
Not to mention NO Cruise Control on there top of the line Cruiser
All I can say is that must have been some party the night before the drawing board session
It's just barely viable on them from a dollar standpoint, and it's only been the last year or two that they've even made it available on those two models.
I bet there's a liability issue. With standard brakes, crashing is your fault. With wiz-bang techno brakes, it could be their fault.Can you imagine being used to braking hard all the time to take advantage of the ABS, and then suddenly having it default to non-antilock mode right when you need it most? Then, too, Triumph have never tried to be the most modern at everything. The basic, no-nonsense nature of British bikes is part of their appeal.
I hope it was generally helpful in understanding the question.Well that was as good an answer as any I suppose, however Lurking ,Nit Picky is a bit un called for but thanks for the responce
I hope it was generally helpful in understanding the question.
As for "nitpicky," it wasn't directed at you. It means only what it says: we have a few occasional lurkers (actually, there are indications some of them are the same person) who spend the bulk of their time elsewhere, but drop by once in a while just to pick a fight. ...
